Good point... according to Ray Kurzweil, computers will be faster than the human brain by 2020.

Makes me even more hopeful about clean energy tech becoming more affordable and efficient in the near future. For the same reason, PERHAPS they will figure out what to do with spent nuclear fuel but I don't think it is worth the risk to invest in more nuclear power.

Of course, as Mandojammer pointed out, renewable tech uses petroleum products in production it's not all good on that front either. At this point in the evolution of civilization, no solution will be clear of issues.
